Reachnet nbn Sky Muster Plus has been a major improvement to the internet experience of our customers who are now able to do more online than they ever could in the past when compared to standard nbn Sky Muster. This is especially true if you live in a family that has a gamer.
Have you ever been in the situation where a family member went and downloaded a game online and then the whole family had no data for the rest of the month? Now, your internet has been slowed down for the rest of the month so you are now unable to do your everyday critical browsing, leaving you very frustrated. You would either have to buy data packs which can be quite expensive or wait it until your data reset. This no longer has to happen to you and your family.
How will my family be happier with Reachnet nbn Sky Muster Plus as gamers?
We will demonstrate this using an example of Charlotte’s family who purchased a Reachnet nbn Sky Muster Plus 50 for $65 per month* against Michael’s family who purchased a standard sky muster plan from Reachnet, our Reach 70 for $70 per month**. Final Fantasy VII and Animal Crossing are two very popular games at the moment and in both families these games were highly requested as ones to add to the library. Both families decided to purchase them. Final Fantasy VII was downloaded on the PS4 and Animal Crossing on the Nintendo Switch.
It can be seen in the table below that if both families downloaded the same games during the month, that Charlotte’s family will have more data than Michael’s family does and Charlotte’s family also pays $5 less per month than Michael’s family does. This is because game downloads don’t count towards your data with Reachnet nbn Sky Muster Plus, but they do on Reachnet standard Sky Muster.

If your family is currently on a Reachnet 70 plan and you have gamers in your household, we recommend switching to the Reachent nbn Sky Muster Plus 50. Not only will you have more data, just like Charlotte’s family does in our example, but you’ll also save $5 per month!
What can Charlotte’s family do with the extra data that Michael’s family doesn’t have?
Assuming that both Michael’s family and Charlotte’s family did everything else the same that month and all activities such as social media, web browsing, video streaming were the same. Michael’s family would run out of data first, their standard nbn Sky Muster connection would be slowed down and doing anything online will become frustrating, or they would have to purchase more data. For Charlotte’s family, as they are on Reachnet nbn Sky Muster plus, if they wanted to, they could actually delete both Final Fantasy VII and Animal Crossing which they downloaded and download them both again and still have 100GB of data remaining, which is something Michael’s family simply could not do. His family just doesn’t have enough data to do that.
With the extra 26.8 GB Charlotte’s family could watch an extra 25 hours of Netflix (on SD) which Michael’s family wouldn’t be able to do.
Charlotte’s family could also video call anyone in the world on Facetime or Zoom without using any data at all and listen to Spotify day and night which also won’t count towards their data. These activities don’t count towards your data at all on Reachnet nbn Sky Muster Plus. Find out more about unmetered video calling here and unmetered music and audio here.
Is Reachnet nbn Sky Muster Plus for me?
If you are in a family filled with people who like to buy single player games and these games also have frequent downloadable updates. Then you would be a lot happier if you switched to Reachnet nbn Sky Muster Plus as you could basically remove video game downloads from your data usage completely and just like Charlotte’s family, you’ll have the data available to use on exciting things like watching Netflix or other video streaming applications, listening to music or video calling your friends and family.
